Coby

Fin was in bed and being watched over, and Anael didn't linger. He took off from the roof, longing with all of his being for the comforting warmth of God's Love when he stood in Their presence. There was a place inside of him that ached with what he had done, a place he didn't know how to reach and make better. So he prayed, flying above London, cloaked from the gaze of men. He prayed, until he realised where the winds had taken him.

He landed on the rooftop of the converted church and sent another prayer, of thanks this time, to God. He slipped inside and knocked on Coby's door, the wings vanished, but the blood from both Fin and the other Fae still on his clothes and hands.

Coby didn't actually get as many unexpected guests in London as he had back home, but there was one who had a standing invitation and really could and did drop in just whenever. So when the knock came, Coby set aside the guitar, a smile already forming as he opened the door. A smile that froze then faded when he saw how the angel looked. One breath, then he reached out for Anael, "C'mere, angel."

Coby did love, and he poured that love into the kiss, one arm wrapping around Anael's back and the other hand burying in his hair. "Not for me. And not now you're here." Whatever was wrong – Coby hadn't missed the blood – Anael would be better off here, with Coby.

Too much, too conflicting, too complicated was a familiar feeling for Coby. Anael and the love he felt had been a steady, stable anchor for him. Now Coby offered it back to him, love and acceptance simple as they kissed. "I'm here, my lovely," and kissed him again.

Without letting go or looking anywhere but in Anael's eyes, Coby started walking them toward the couch. He wanted Anael in his arms in ways they couldn't there near the door. "Is he okay?" Anael wasn't, but they would get to that. Best to ask about Fin first, so he could focus on Anael after.

Fae. Unseelie. There were so many things in the world, and Coby barely knew any of them.

Coby watched the blood vanish, but not everything was that easy, especially for someone who felt as much as Anael. "But Fae business isn't exactly angel business, I'm guessing." He cupped Anael's jaw, stroking along the cheekbone with his thumb. "Whatever you need, you know that."

Oh, Anael.

Coby didn't have words to go with how he ached for him. He was still more human than angel or whatever he was becoming now, so he couldn't remember what it must be like to stand in Their presence, or how it felt losing that. He pressed a kiss to Anael's hair, wanting to keep him close and knowing it couldn't come close to comparing to what he'd lost.

"You're still you. That means there's hope."

Hand stroking slowly through Anael's hair, and Coby's other arm tightened around him, wanting to ease his pain, keep him close and loved. Not that it could be enough. The wings appeared, unexpected and awkward pinned between Coby and the couch, and he shifted enough to free one, wrapping it around both of them.

Coby was quiet for awhile, letting Anael feel his love, warmth, and presence. "You'll earn it," he said eventually. "I have faith in that. And in you. Whatever you did, however bad it was, it's not an end."

Coby knew Anael, as well as any human could, and he couldn't imagine what the angel could've done that would make a loving God cut him off. He also knew Anael wasn't one of the Fallen, or one of the Watchers, so he would earn his way back.

Coby had a hard time believing it could be that bad either, but Anael was being punished either way. He knew it wasn't the same at all, but Coby couldn't help thinking about time outs or later groundings by his mom. How they were usually as much about giving them both time to cool down and to think about what he'd done (or not) as they were any sort of punishment.

But Coby's mom wasn't God, and Coby was no angel... in this lifetime.

He pressed another kiss to Anael's head, his hand still stroking slow and soothing. "Can you tell me about it?"

And tonight Anael had had to fight to protect Fin. No wonder he was upset. Oh, Anael. "They made you for love and then sent you to war. Against your brothers." That was what it had been: heaven's civil war.

"I'm sorry, my lovely."

"All the lives I've had. All the ones I could've had, and this time around my parents are a couple of hippies who never grew out of it." The thought didn't seem out of context to Coby, whether it made sense to Anael or not.

"I've been saying 'make love, not war' since before I knew what it really meant, and I'm in your life, for you to find me tonight when you needed someone."

Coby smiled back and pressed another soft kiss to his lips, then to his forehead. "Anything, lovely. I can't feel it if you pray, but I hope you'll always come find me when you need me."

A second passed, then another. "Even when all I can do is love you."

"Come to bed?" Anael would hear the let me love you in the words. "Or a shower?" The blood might be physically gone, but that didn't mean the angel didn't still feel it, and there was more than one way to get clean.

Coby took the hand as he got up from the couch, then softly kissed the knuckles. The short walk through the bedroom into the bath would be plenty long enough to get Anael out of his clothes the old-fashioned way. Shedding them along the way one more symbol and a chance for Coby to have his hands all over him.

The kiss was warm and loving, even sweet, the way Anael made Coby feel. He cradled the angel's jaw with one hand, thumb stroking softly along his cheek.

A Dusty Springfield song his mom liked to sing popped into his head all the sudden – All you gotta do is hold and kiss him and love him and show him that you care – and Coby smiled softly, sending up a mental That's the idea, Mom to the universe.

Coby's shirt got gone. He didn't care so much how when he could be running his hands over Anael's chest and back, pulling him into another kiss as he steered them toward the bath.

Every moment with Anael was worth savoring, and Coby let the world fade away, focusing on the feel of Anael's kisses and his body and the love they shared wound through all of it.

One hand drifted down to Anael's jeans, undoing the fly with practiced ease. No hurry toward heating things up, but getting out of their clothes would strip away everything that wasn't them, leaving nothing else between them.

Coby stepped out of his jeans, leaving them in a puddle by Anael's on the floor, and then pulled Anael close again. He didn't really think about the wings, had mostly forgotten they were there until they drew forward, wrapping around Coby and Anael.

"Were you... we... lovers?" He asked, not sure why that question now, or if Anael had told him before. "You and Shamsiel."

"And I love you." Coby put all that love into his kiss, knowing Anael always felt love but wanting to give it to him now, deliberately. "I shouldn't've asked. I'm sorry I'm not him, my lovely."

Two people and wings would make for a kind of crowded shower, so as they got to the bathroom, Coby tucked them away to wherever it was they went.

"You are so wonderful." As in, filled him with wonder. Usually that was the kind of thing Anael would say about Coby instead of the other way around, which was truer, if you asked Coby, but today felt topsy-turvy in a lot of ways.

One long kiss followed by another, and Coby's hand stroking slow and easy over Anael's body as they held each other close. Eventually Coby reached out with the other hand to turn on the water, shifting them enough so they weren't directly in the spray before the temperature adjusted, wanting to take care of Anael even in such a little way.

Coby drank in Anael's kisses, sipped at his lips, and let the water wash over them both. Naked and in love with Anael in his arms, Coby was more than half hard, but that wasn't as urgent as the way they kissed and the way they felt, and helping the pain Anael felt wash away.
